Two thousand years in the future, a biologist named Sarnac falls into a brief but deep slumber and experiences a vivid dream of epic proportions. After awakening, Sarnac recounts the contents of his dream, which consisted of the entire life of Harry Mortimer Smith, an Edwardian Englishman from the beginning of the 20th century.
Wells seems chiefly concerned with philosophical questions of his day, using his stories to illustrate what he calls the "Age of Confusion" of human identity.
